Gynecomastia Surgery in New York

Manhattan, New York City

This text will be replaced

Many men experience a condition called gynecomastia, where fatty tissue and breast tissue cause enlargement of the breasts. The condition usually starts in men in adolescence and does not respond to diet and exercise. The treatment for gynecomastia is probably the most common operation sought by men. In cases where the enlargement is due to excess fatty tissue, liposuction can usually treat the condition. If the cause is excess breast tissue, a subcutaneous mastectomy may be the best option for removal. In this operation, the breast tissue is actually cut out. After treatment, men can then develop the pectoral muscles without the camouflaging effect of the enlarged breasts. If your gynecomastia is associated with an abdominal pouch and love handles, it may be best to treat all three areas at the same time. By doing so you have a better overall result, have only one operation, one recovery period, and it is more economical.

Gynecomastia Surgery for Men in Manhattan New YorkThe Procedure
The treatment often entails only liposuction using a very small incision underneath the breast. In some cases, excisional surgery whereby breast tissue is actually cut out may be necessary.

Recovery
Patients need to wear a binder for 1-2 weeks. Return to work may be as quick as the following day, but most patients take a few days. Massage and ultrasound treatment given post-operatively is an integral part of our program.
